16 weeks post lisfranc surgery

 

At 16 weeks post lisfranc surgery, my healing foot (right) has nearly as much ability to bend as my normal foot.

 Being able to bend my big toe has been integral to my ability to walk “normally” again.

At 16 weeks, my ankle swells only when I am on my foot for too long.  Otherwise it looks “normal” most of the time.

I have gone from needing the John Deere to go up to our main level……..

To using a knee scooter to get around….

Graduating to using a walker.  Next came 2 crutches and then one crutch…

The cane with  my boot came next

 Followed by a sneaker with only the boot and without the cane

At 16 weeks I occasionally need the cane with my sneaker

But most of the time, I can walk every third or fourth step in my sneakers pain free and without my cane

I am dreaming of the day when I can start to wear “normal” shoes again….even if the shoes are just sandals  without heels!!
